Greetings from the "New Black Eagle Jazz Band", playing traditional jazz for more than 40 years, and still going strong!

The Black Eagles, as we are often known to our fans, have been a fixture on the international jazz scene since 1971, bringing the sounds of traditional New Orleans Jazz to audiences all over the world. Many observers regard us as the premier band playing in the traditional jazz style; we do regard ourselves as the "Keepers of the Flame”!

We refuse to slavishly copy earlier jazz performances note for note, but are – at all times – aware of the legacy and influence from such legendary New Orleans musicians as Louis Armstrong, George Lewis, Kid Ory, Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton, Paul Barbarin and, of course, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band - just to name a few of those who represent the best in the history of New Orleans Jazz. We also have a good selection of Duke Ellington and Ragtime to spice the pot – so to speak.

We welcome you to our website where you will find our schedule with news of events and activities regarding the band; band history; and a schedule of our upcoming regular gigs and concerts. For any newcomers to our music, our website also includes sample sound clips from several of our recordings and CDs.

For those who play their music on computers or iPods – we now work with CD Baby to make our music available through iTunes, Napster and other music download services.
